“Jack is one of the most talented players the Boro’ will sign this season” said delighted Manager, Jimmy Ginnelly “his vision and eye for a goal splitting pass will excite the supporters. He’s had 18 months out with an ACL injury but has been getting himself fit and ready for this season. He could have raced back last season whilst at Telford, but he’s a switched on lad and hasn’t rushed his rehab. He’ll get himself up to speed with us this preseason and play a massive part in ensuring we’re competing at the top end of the table.”
As well as AFC Telford United and Brackley Town, Jack has had spells with Solihull Moors, where he won the National League North, and helped Kidderminster Harriers to an FA Cup fourth round tie with Sunderland in 2014, narrowly missing out on the fifth round after losing 1-0 at the Stadium of Light, to the then Premier League outfit.
“On a personal note, having been out for over a year, I’m just looking forward to being back out on the grass, enjoying my football and with being back amongst it” said Byrne, continuing “I want to be successful and to help bring success back to the Boro’.
“I’ve played at Liberty Way numerous times and always saw it as a tough place to come, you always knew you were in for a good battle. I know the side only won one league match at home last season, but we’ll be looking to put that to rights.
“I haven’t worked with any of the coaches before but they’ve assembled a good squad, I’ve played with Aman Verma at Kidderminster and Joel Kettle at Solihull and they’re both top lads and solid footballers. I can’t wait to get started.”
Welcome to the Boro’ Jack.
